OK, no problem. Just 1 less hunk in the patch file :)

Heh, you may find that someone will tilt over such a glaring unrelated change, just as others (like me and apparently you) have no difficulties at all with it.

To be honest, I have almost no experience with editing autoconf/configure based build systems, other than simple changes. As I wrote earlier, I'd put ${prefix}/share into a preprocessor macro if the corresponding option has been given to configure, and then also use that macro to activate the corresponding code. Either the line


or all of xdgDirs() and the places it's called.

The configure option could be something like `-xdg-compliant-path`, but I hope David has some suggestions on how to implement the intermediate things.
